Their family emigrate to Wellington and sailed on the Rajah from England in 1853. The trip was an eventful one, as they encountered a pirate ship.
Learmonth Dalrymple then left Wellington and kept a house at Kaihiku in South Otago and established the first Sunday School in the district.
In 1863, she started campaigning for a Otago Girl's High School, providing the brains and organisation for the movement while Major Richardson did the talking in public.
The same year she led a successful campaign to persuade the new University of Otago to admit women as students. It was the first Australasian university to do so.
In 1881, she moved with her father to Feilding, to meet her brother John Dalrymple. She remained there after her father's death the next year.
Her health and memory began to fail and she returned to Dunedin. She died at Ashburn Hall, Dunedin, on 26 August 1906, but buried at Palmerston North.
